Intercol round-up: Signal Hill edge Bishop’s to meet Speyside in Tobago final


Signal Hill Secondary will get the chance to defend their Tobago Zone Intercol title on 22 November after the reigning champions edged Bishop’s High School 2-1 in Saturday’s semifinal contest.

Bishop’s competed in the 2018 Premier Division competition—although they were relegated—while Signal Hill participated in the second tier zonal competition. But Signal Hill would not be denied in the knock out competition, as they prevailed on goals from Quincy Winchester and Christian Jordan. Hasani Lewis grabbed a consolation item for Bishop’s.

Speyside High School are Tobago’s other Intercol finalist, as they held off Scarborough Secondary 3-1 in Saturday’s other semifinal contest. Deleon Beckles scored twice and Ronaldo Samuel also chipped in with a goal for the “Country Boys” while Jaheim Harry and Miguel Taylor scored for Scarborough.

In the Girls Intercol competition, Valencia Secondary will contest the East Zone final after they surprised Bishop Anstey High School East 5-3 on kicks from the penalty spot, after a 1-1 regulation time draw yesterday.

Valencia face Five Rivers Secondary in Tuesday’s Girls East Zone Intercol final, after the latter school whipped El Dorado East Secondary 7-2 yesterday.

  1. Media coverage will not help at that age. That age the focus should be on development and media coverage will cause alot of coaches to move away from that.

  2. ..Form 1? Media coverage? And we want to go World Cup. I guarantee you prepubescent kids’ football doesn’t get media coverage in ANY serious football country..

    • Keith Look Loy My view the more coverage we give them at an earlier age the easier it would be to attend to their inefficiencies. Not when they make National team

    • ..Media coverage has to do with sponsorship and has nothing to do with “inefficiencies”, which only coaching will correct. Tell me when last you saw U12s being covered in the media of any serious football country. We give media coverage to kids, make them “stars”, and then we can’t beat Surinam..

    • Keith Look Loy My point exactly we need to fix that. The village fixing the problem. Not the so called village guru who doesn’t have a clue. All of us doing it together. My view!

    • Keith Look Loy I believe the both of us want the same thing for local football vast improvement sooner than later. We agree to disagree. I feel if coaches get showed up in the national space early we will see improvement from their charges. All the academies and coaching schools improving by leaps and bounds.

  3. Lasana Liburd Thanks for the coverage, but how come the form 1’s league pic get into the intercol report? The form 1’s league should have its own report bro!
